You should look into the other post that Heather put up. It talked about how women need to escape because it alleviates stress, thus leaving the body open to sexual intimacy. It's not that way for me, but it seems to be that way for a lot of women.

That's it for me, I need to escape.

I haven't read it

I have not read it and I probably won't because I have heard it is fairly racey and I am not into that sort of reading.  We just make sure to have good communication both in and out of the bedroom and it seems to keep things spicy enough for us, lol.

I haven't read it, not sure if I will. Honestly the only thing driving me to is being nosey.

I did read 50 Shades just to see what the fuss was all about.  DH thought it was funny that I read a "naughty" book. lol

I see nothing wrong with reading smut.  Its not something I really want to do in real life, but I enjoy reading about it kind of as a "how the other half lives" type of thing.  Its more enjoyable to me to read about someone living a different type of life than what I am.

I don't need to read junk like that. I think people need to spend less time reading it and more time actually doing it. (Seems kinda common sense to me.)

Nope, I have no interest in that series.

I haven't read that book, but I think reading romances and watching romance movies definitely puts me more in the mood.
